Cat Has Telekinetic Powers (Not Really, But The Vid Is Fun)

Leonard the Persian cat is pretty special: He has "telekinetic powers." Better be nice to him.

That was Leonard, the Persian rescue. As you can see from that very authentic, unedited video — he has super cat powers. Kind of like the male, feline version of Jean Grey. 

We even got to meet the star via Skype. Watch out, Grumpy Cat, Leonard is comin' for you. 

Leonard's servant — we mean owner — Byron Gatt told us he wanted to make fun cat videos that no one had seen before. Here's how he does it:

GATT: "I actually have a stuffed cat duplicate of him I use for certain things, and also, it's really a combination of live action and very little digital effects."

Leonard's facial expressions are incredibly human-like. But we're not sure how he's going to react to this: He might have to share the spotlight!

GATT: "He's the subject right now, but I have another cat ... and her video hasn't come out yet."

Gatt said if he did this full time, he could pop out a new vid about every two weeks. Sadly, he doesn't ... so we'll just have to wait for his next masterpiece. 

For more, you cansubscribe to the Super Epic Cats YouTube channel ... and scope out some of Leonard's other super powers, like hovering.
